Here's a classic Mount Barker Riesling that is just delicious. A pure expression of fruit, with crunchy acidity and refreshing lemon and lime... it's such a baby, and yet will be able to cellar for over 20 years. Made from some of Mt Barker's oldest vines (there's a clue), this mystery white was given 96 points from James Halliday who described it as 'exquisite'. In other words, it's an absolute cracker!
Item Code: ITM23582
Aromas of lemon rind, with a waxy, lanolin note, underpinned by wet slate minerality and attractive kaffir and grassy hints. The palate has a lovely weight and viscosity with loads of lime and grapefruit with a grassy, herbal character, and a stony mineral note underneath. It's crisp and fresh with a taut acidity and linear focus through to the finish. Fresh and appealing.

"Hand-picked, wild-fermented in puncheons, 20% mlf, matured on lees for 9 months. This would immediately be identified as an Upper Yarra Valley wine, but it's nowhere near all the other vineyards - it's higher and leans steeply into the morning sun. The wine is intensely focused, long and linear. All the right winemaking steps have been done, but it's like polishing 24-carat gold." Halliday Wine Companion
Item Code: ITM20292
"What a terrific pinot gris with its pale copper hue, crunchy fresh, and poached, pears flecked with powdered ginger, vanilla and cardamom. Loads of creamy texture and lemon curd but sprightly acidity keeps it buoyant given the complexity and depth of flavour." Halliday Wine Companion
Item Code: ITM22296
Pear, lemon and floral aromas on the nose open up to reveal a crisp, refreshing palate. A mix of stonefruit and citrus combines with vibrant natural acidity to create a versatile cool-climate Chardonnay.

Item Code: ITM18613
The cool-climate of the Yarra Valley allows Chandon to produce Chardon fruit, which is of consistently high quality. Enticing aromas of white flowers, grapefruit and stone fruit aromas. The palate is delicate with notes on fresh pear and apple balanced by zesty acidity and exceptional length.
Item Code: ITM5038

Item Code: ITM7580
This wine is all about fruit purity and elegance. Although barrel-fermented, and matured on lees, the oak is a background note, adding complexity and texture. The palate is crisp and textural, long and refined with wonderfully balanced acidity and a hint of salinity on the finish. Excellent.
Item Code: ITM22131
Contemporary in style this youthful wine offers fabulous flavour intensity yet is still approachable and refreshing. A fragrant bouquet of ripe lemon and spicy talc continues onto the palate.

"Arguably the most detailed Churinga to date reaching lofty heights with its clarity and whorl of citrus from mandarin blossom, lemon juice and pith with flavours building along the palate. Its frame is linear and elegant, and the acidity has laser precision right through to the long finish." Halliday Wine Companion
Item Code: ITM20298
Barrel-fermentation, a touch of skin contact and maturation on lees have given this wine an incredible structure and complexity. A true Fumé style showing herbal aromas and nutty characters, together with pineapple and lemon sherbet on the palate. Excellent.
